Elton’s Villalba Gig

Thursday 5

In past years, the Viajazz Festival near Madrid has attracted artists like Bob Dylan and B.B. King.

This time around, the event, running until July 13, includes Elton, Al Green, and Elvis Costello.

In fact, Elton opened the fest on July 3, as he did at the Concert For Diana, with Your Song.

Other selections in the set included Honky Cat, Daniel, Circle of Life, Rocket Man, Philadelphia Freedom and Bennie and The Jets (with the latter done in a version reminding many of Glenn Miller).

This was Elton’s only Spanish date on his tour.

 Below is a photo of him at the show, attended by 7,500.
